On July 30th 2014, the press conference took place in the Ho Chi Minh City Television (HTV) station studios to announce the programme called “Building The Future Together”. It is produced by HTV along with Đông Tây Promotion and initiated and sponsored by Prudential Vietnam.
The programme aims to capture audiences and show them the complete process of building new schools (kindergartens and primary schools), replacing those which were either non-existent, overloaded or degraded in 6 provinces: Quang Tri, Quang Binh, Tra Vinh, Hau Giang, Kien Giang and Ca Mau. It was SCC’s honour to be chosen to be one of the two partners on the ground, providing consultation as well as managing and coordinating the fund as well as the progress of building 7 of the 10 schools that the programme will build this year.

This is one of SCC’s major School Building and Learning Environment programme projects in 2014. Over the course of 32 weekly episodes, Prudential and SCC hope that we can contribute to change the lives of these children and the communities and really show people how difficult life continues to be for these communities. Therefore, they can smile every day as they head off to school with the help of the wider Vietnamese community who are always by their side to support them.
